Angry Firefox 57.0.x - Search Box problem

The Search Bar in Firefox 57.0.x only searches when I am logged in a Root. I usually log in as a standard user and have no joy with it then.

It seems like it's a permissions issue. Have looked around my .mozilla directory extensively but haven't been able to figure it out.

If anyone could point me to the way of resolving this I'd be very grateful. Thanks.

Maybe some files owned by root?
find ~/.mozilla -uid 0
